Published: 2020-12-15

Description

  • ​​Unable to load appearance file from Creo Parametric 5.0 and later

  • Reference: CS145789

  • ​If the appearance.dmt file was saved in a earlier version of Creo they  might not be loaded as they should in to Creo under My Appearances

For Creo 5.0 - 7.0

  1. Change default-directory for appearance from: <Creo_Installation_Directory>\Common Files\graphic-library\appearances

  2. To change directory of this file, use config.pro option pro_colormap_path <appearance.dmt_directory>

​​If the appearance file is old and not loaded under My appearances then proceed with the following workaround:

  1. Set only config.pro: pro_colormap_path och inte global_appearance_file
    EG: pro_colormap_path "C:\PTC\creolib\colors"

  2. Rename the current .dmt file to: appearance.dmt

  3. Remove the default-files from, <Creo_Installation_Directory>\Common Files\graphic-library\appearances
